Alexander Hilton

The headline on a story (29 August) about a spoof website set up by Mr Hilton, the prospective Labour candidate for Chelsea and Fulham, incorrectly stated that Mr Hilton had admitted that the spoof was intended to smear the Tories. In fact Mr Hilton did not admit any intention to smear the Tories nor, he tells us, did he ever have that aim.
